Former UFC light-heavyweight champion Quinton ‘Rampage’ Jackson has heaped huge praise on Brian Rose for the dedication he has shown during training ahead of his return to the ring at the Liverpool Olympia tonight.
Rose (30-5-1) fights on this evening’s #MTKFightNight show live on iFL TV, and will have MMA legend Rampage there to support him. The duo spent several weeks training together with coach Bobby Rimmer in California, and Rampage was extremely impressed with what he saw.
He said: “I’ve had a great time watching Brian train. He trains so hard and inspires me to get back in there and push it to the limit. He’s followed his diet flawlessly and produced some great strength and conditioning work, so he’s looked unstoppable.
“I’ve known him for a couple years but we’ve never spent this much time together. I knew he was a great guy from the first time I met him, and any friend of Bobby Rimmer is a friend of mine.
“I’ve come over here to England and Brian is looking over me. I’ve been hanging out in Blackpool which has been a nice experience, and I want to spend more time here.
“I’ll be there watching Brian’s fight tonight. I was there the night when Brian won a title in the past and that was exciting for me to see, so I’m looking forward to his fight.”
Tonight’s event at the Liverpool Olympia is live on iFL TV, and includes a main event between Jazza Dickens and Nasibu Ramadhan in a final eliminator for the Commonwealth featherweight title.
